“welcoming family home”
Reviewed May 22, 2011

We were made very welcome by the family. Clean room and bedding. Excellent breakfast. Plenty of car parking space. Situated on the river just under the rail bridge - what a view!

We needed a last minute room near Newcastle for Saturday night and found the Castle Vale through LateRooms. All the LateRooms reviews praised it highly so we booked early on Saturday morning. Margaret emailed a confirmation to me within a couple of hours.

We spent longer in Newcastle than we had expected and were running late so I phoned Margaret to let her know that we were still coming, she said that she was going out but Justin would be there to meet us.
The hotel is down a winding drive right next to Berwick Station but you'd never know it. Situated right under the railway bridge in peaceful grounds it seems to be built into the town walls.
Justin met us and signed us in and, along with a granddaughter, showed us our room and where to find local information. We could also book breakfast which we did for 7.30.
Our room was on the ground floor. A lovely, huge room with double aspect windows. A lovely bay with seats in, we spent a peaceful 1/2 hour watching the sunset through the arch of the bridge. The bed was a huge double with a beautifully comfortable mattress and duvet, we slept very well. My only slight criticism would be that the bed is a little low. There was plenty of cupboard space, lots of wooden coat hangers, a dressing table, bedside tables and lights, supplementary heating, tea/coffee/chocolate and kettle, in fact I can't think of anything that was missing. There was a varied selection of books in the large bookcase most of which looked to be well read. There were dvds in the hall to borrow (didn't look at these so can't comment on the selection). The shower room was clean with shower gels and body lotion etc. The shower itself was super with lots of hot water and a powerful spray.
We were given a room key and front door key and told to come and go as we pleased.

In the morning we met Margaret in the Lounge/Breakfast room. She's a lovely lady and cooks a mean breakfast. We had the full English and it was splendid. There are also other options- fruit, cereal, youghurt etc. The room itself is beautiful with loads of pictures, paintings, family photos, curios, books etc. Also a beautiful piano.

All in all we had a great stay at the Castle Vale and are only sorry that it was only 1 night. It really was like being invited into someones home. Thank you Margaret and Justin.
